VMWare Workstation Mouse Frustrations


I've paid for yearly upgrades of WS for almost a decade, and I've finally had enough of these bugs.

Using Ubuntu 14 host.  Running guests in Full Screen.


  1. Most of the time, mouse clicks near the edge of the guest windows are seen as clicks to the host.  The workaround is to enable Exclusive Mode, but this makes switching between guests a real pain.
  2. Moving the mouse to the top of the screen should reveal the VMWare menu bar.  It often doesn't.  Sometimes when it does, a click on the menu bar is seen as a click to the host.

Hopefully someone has a solution to these issues, or VMWare staff will report these bugs and get them fixed.
